So I understand the thin line with dairy and paleo. (if you're hardcore dairy is blasphemy.) but whats the deal with types of cheeses that are okay. I have a recipe ready using pears, roquefort, and almonds but was curious if bleu cheeses are out of the question.
For those who don't know rouquefort is essentially sheep milk's blue cheese.
Blue-veined cheeses contain strains of mold and should be avoided by anyone trying to manage an autoimmune condition (leaky gut, candida, eczema, psoriasis and other autoimmune conditions will be exacerbated by these cheeses). Other than that, I don't make it a staple but do enjoy a bit on occasion without any noticeable ill-effects.
One of the biggest complaints with dairy is the amount of lactose. As others have said, it depends on your tolerance level of lactose. The other is iffy as full on dairy allergies - in this case likely to casein or whey.
